Sayang Block 88 Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Silver Medal Mundus Vini for the 2013

 

This Block 88 Cabernet Sauvignon underlines the elegant Sayang style of balanced wood integration. We wanted to enhance finesse, rather than show off with a mere blockbuster. Ripe blackcurrant, blond tobacco, liquorice, black pepper and a hint of vanilla. The stylish fruit and spice characters offer an inviting and full bodied wine with a long finish. We added a touch of Syrah to the blend to complement the rich character of the Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Discover this wine with hearty flavourful starters, all kinds of meat, stews, matured cheese, game and grilled or refined sauced meat recipes. Serve at 18° C.
